Computer Literacy training: Since Computer literacy has become necessary and important in these modern times, Edukey found it essential to the generation of today to acquire computer literacy skills in order for them to fit in the world of technology. Edukey empowers members with skills therefore in 2023 a total of 93 school going young people and 45 youth were trained in computer literacy. For the youth the skills gained is helping them to apply in their places of work and their own use in business. For the school going children it’s for examination purpose for now.

Music dance and drama training: Among the skills being promoted by Edukey is music dance and drama. They are very important because it’s a source of employment and a therapy. Realizing its importance to young people, Edukey had to start trainings. Music dance and drama is a tool for sensitization and education on contemporary issues affecting human being in the community therefore having a trained group is important to the organization. Trainings were conducted during the year ending and 47 children were trained.

Tailoring and design: Unemployment among youth is among the issues affecting the development of communities and countries worldwide. Most of the youth are being trained for white collar jobs and yet there few jobs for them. Edukey realized that there is need to train youth in hands on skills. Among the hands-on skills thought of was the tailoring and hair dressing. The objective is to empower youth with hands on employable and gainful skills for development and selfreliance. By the end of the year 67 single mothers and school drop outs had acquired the skills in tailoring and design

Hair dressing: Community members who did not have an opportunity to get hands on skills are being empowered with such skills that can help them to become self-employed and earn something for their living. Hair dressing training is conducted at Edukey centre among women and girls who dropped out of school. This skill is helping many women to earn a living and support their families with essential domestic needs. The year ending a total number of 52 community members have benefited in the skills training.

School programs: Education is vital for helping children develop healthily to become productive members of society.

The teachers offered their services to the children. The year ending was challenged with sickness, poverty, rainfall and some parent’s failure to play their roles and obligations. Regardless of the mentioned challenges, the staff continued to play their roles and the administration to offer its services and obligations. A total of 76 pupils attended school and completed and promoted to the next class.
